Storyline

Jen is thrilled when the handsome Philip asks her out to the theatre though less so when Roy and Moss also invite themselves along. The play in question is 'Gay', a screamingly camp musical which Moss loves but Jen begins to question Philip's sexuality and is not flattered when he confesses he fancies her because she looks like a man. Roy meanwhile has an accident in the disabled toilet which results in his being loaded into a mini-van bound back to Manchester with other disabled play-goers and Jen is surprised to see Moss working behind the bar after he used the staff toilet.

"Every assumption I've ever had is being challenged, and I'm loving it."
22 July 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

An absolutely hysterical episode. Jen has found yet another prospective boyfriend, and he asks her to go to the theater with him. When Moss and Roy invite themselves along, both manage to get into trouble, and hilarity ensues! It's true that this episode doesn't incorporate as many geek jokes as usual or take place in the typical work setting. Instead, the episode follows a far more daring path: it puts established characters into a new situation. This time, the humor revolves around the personalities of Moss, Roy, and Jen, not just references to geek culture. But don't worry, the episode still has plenty of The IT Crowd's trademark hilarious one-liners. Don't miss it!
